I still have these kitchen chairs – they need to go in the next few days. I’ve dropped the price form R220 a chair to R120 a chair! A bargain! Read the original blog post blow (NB: the table has already been sold):
I’ve always liked these old formica kitchen tables – in fact I like them so much that I have a yellow one on my balcony – but this is an extra special version! It’s quite a bit older than most of the formica tables that you see, and has some very cool features, like that metal strip that runs around the circumference of the table and gives it a great American diner feel. My yellow table has a plastic strip , and it’s not quite the same! This table also has wooden sides which have been painted to match that minty green formica top, and solid metal legs (the legs are much chunkier than you normally find). The table is obviously quite worn in places, but that’s to be expected given it’s age (I think it mist be at least 45-50 years old), and on the whole it’s still a solid piece of furniture.
The chairs belong to a good friend of mine. I’ve been holding onto them waiting to find something to match them up with, and I think this table does a perfect job! The chairs are slightly more rustic than the table, and could probably do with a good paint, although there’s a certain charm to just how worn they are. It looks like they were painted pink previously and some of this paint is starting to show through on the one chair – it was Janet’s favourite chair (she loved the pink/green combo!).
A very charming set that would look so sweet in a kitchen or on a covered balcony. The perfect place to eat your granola before you head out for the day!
